This workshop will bring together researchers tackling theoretical issues at the intersection of quantum theory and gravitational physics.
Please feel welcome to attend the Gravity in the Quantum Regime workshop taking place in Wilder Laboratory, Dartmouth College on June 28th-29th, 2018. This workshop will bring together researchers tackling theoretical issues at the intersection of quantum theory and gravitational physics. The workshop will consist of five 1-hour long talks and four discussion sessions.
